in thread How do *you* secure your network with Perl?

While you *could* write an IDS in perl, I am pretty sure any link with much activity would cause the PerlIDS(tm) to drop packets.

However, a better use for perl in your IDS implementation is in the role of analysis scripts. Your IDS implementation should probably consist of one or more "quick and dirty" systems -- snort (or your IDS of choice) with fewer rules, and one or more analysis machines. Perl excels in the analysis role -- processing "historical" data.

    On the subject of analysis (and somewhat removed from "modules"), I've had great success with Psionic's PortSentry, HostSentry and LogSentry.

    If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
